Choice

A family member forgot to set up a weekly visit with me. I got angry (an expression of pain).

 

I could just as easily have accepted that they forgot, didn't and won't apologize, decide that I'm worthy in my eyes (no matter what), release that they won't meet my expectation and know that it is not my burden. In other words, I could just as easily choose contentment through acceptance.

 

I am still choosing anger, aka, my pain.

 

We can take any experience we have and choose the pain or accept that it is and then it was. Acceptance of the 'what is', is key for it to become 'then it was'.

 

We can decide how we feel about it, what we will focus on in the experience (pain or understanding self/others) and whether we will continue to review it, reverberating the pain with repetition or accept 'the what is'.

 

We can decide to take responsibility for the parts that are ours and release the part that is the other person's. We can also decide to confront but will have to know our expectations will need managing as we are almost surely to be disappointed.

 

In the end, we can choose to ensure, that no matter what we decide (pain or release), we are kind to ourselves. It's part of the processing and healing.

 

This is what it means to choose joy. This is what it means to focus on contentment. Acceptance is not a denial but a choice--a method of dealing with whatever unpleasantness is presented at our feet at any given moment and leaving it there.

My grounding

Over the years I've seen different ideas of what grounding is and different versions of achieving grounding.

 

Grounding is connection in real time (being here now) with yourself and your surroundings. Your thoughts are not a minute into the future nor a minute into the past. It is also a mini meditation. I have used it in the middle of emotionally charged situations, confusion, tiredness, and many other ways.

 

I have found similar ones, but the following is my version of a grounding exercise.

 

GROUNDING:
Visualize a cylinder opening at the bottom of your feet. On inhale, see love light coming in through the top of your head and negative energy going out through your feet.

 

Visualize the cylinder coming up to your ankles. Breathe in and fill with love light; on exhale, see negativity flowing out into the earth. Energy manure for the earth.

 

On each inhale, see the cylinder traveling up each chakra point in the body: ankle, knee, base of pelvis, below belly button, diaphragm, heart, throat, third eye and crown. Continue visualizing each inhale as breathing in love light and each exhale as negativity leaving your body through the arches of your feet.

 

Once at the crown, allow yourself to breathe in light and exhale anything that is not happening right now.

A ponder

Matrix Check

 

Separation from nature through belief, expressed in lifestyle

has produced our current state.

 

 

How's that working for us?

Sensing

Collective consciousness is always important but feels really imperative right now. It's why energies focused on joy and compassion are much needed. Those who are happy for others. Those who stand for those who cannot. Those who are kind. Those who are compassionate. These are the thoughts and actions that we need to feed collective consciousness.

 

It's an intense time for all. Seems like we are all a bit more real--whether that real becomes something savage we use against each other or something compassionate depends on the majority of hearts and minds.

Infused

Imagine what can happen if, for a mere 5 minutes a day,

we all saw the world infused in love.

Imagine...

Rejuvenate

Whether it's a weed pushing away cement or the intricate bark of a tree or the invigorating blue of a sky, take a minute to observe. Taking time each day to absorb a little bit of the natural world around us is rejuvenating.

Responsibility

One of the hardest things to accept is our responsibility to our emotions and

our reactions. If we are told that we made someone feel a certain way,

be aware that their emotions or responses are not our responsibility.

Be aware, the opposite is also true.

Collective kindness

Visualize this world wrapped in a cloud of caring and kindness. The world needs healers to envelope it in love. If all of us do it daily and we all keep asking other people to do so, we can shift, as a collective, much that is not in alignment on this earth and with our higher selves.

Kindness is free

An event hosted by OpHumanAngels:

 

On February 6th, all around the world we will be joining in Solidarity, doing any act of kindness, whether it be smiling at someone on the street, talking to someone who appears lonely, putting loving messages onto paper, and placing them in locations where others may stumble upon them, or giving #FreeHugs wherever they are needed most.

There is no limit to the ways we can brighten the days of the people we share this world with. We always encourage others ot share their ideas with us, so we can grow more, and spread our messages of love, empowerment, fellowship and compassion even further. Many people do this "Operation" every single day. And the first Saturday of every month, we do it as a world.

Thank you for joining, you are creating ripples that will send kindness viral.

Power of self-worth

I think so many women don't realize the power we have in making the world a better place. We have been taught and trained to base our self-worth on 'getting' a man so we focus on pleasing men rather than challenging them. We put up with less than their best because we think it's the best we can do and we're just lucky to 'have' a man. I'm realizing I'd rather focus on my own growth work and supporting others in theirs than try to "save" any man or waste my precious time and energy on one that isn't choosing to wake up. There is no point spending much time with a man (let alone opening my heart and body to one) that isn't standing in his integrity and aligning with his highest purpose or at least doing the work to get there.

Past affecting present

What backstories do we tell ourselves daily? Let's mind our backstories.

They produce our future frontline.

Moments of perception

Within our minutes, days, years, lives, we can choose to focus on what is missing or what is available. We can then choose how to feel about either one. If there is a perception of something missing, we can be hopeful that there is something to fill the gap or frustrated that the component is not there. If the perception is of having something available, we can choose to feel grateful about the abundance or frustrated that it's not enough. We choose all the levels of sentience and attitude about our minutes, days, years, lives.
